Lot Essay


A great number of drawings by Delacroix after old masters are known, in particular after Peter Paul Rubens. Comparable in technique and handling, and like the present sketch also based on figures in Michelangelo’s Last Judgment, can be found in the Louvre, inv. RF 9617, RF 10306 (M. Sérullaz, Inventaire général des dessins. École française. Dessins d’Eugène Delacroix, 1798-1863, Paris, 1984, II, nos. 1420, 1421, ill.).
